We spent 2 days at Dover beach and enjoyed it thoroughly. We rented 2 lounges and umbrella from Charles for $10.00 US dollars. We also received free wifi from Charles and he went above and beyond for us.

We stayed right on Dover beach and were not dissappointed. The beach is awsome , waves not too big, made for great swimming, and snorkeling. There were sea turtles on some days as well. Would highly recommend this beach. You rent 2 chairs/loungers and an umbrella for 10$ us a day. A little expensive but if you want a chair/lounger... More

Very clean and not busy. Blue sea and white sand. Beach was 50 m from.our hotel and although you pay bd$20 for a pair of sunbeds and umbrella it is worth it.

This is a beautiful beach, a long white sandy beach which fronts a lot of the top hotels. There are a lot of watersports going on from the various hotels and it is lovely to walk along.

Lots of Beach chairs to choose from at a cost of $5US each for the day. Decent waves with a slight undertow. Still safe to swim, most days there are yellow flags on the beach. Sea turtles are in the area feeding usually later in the afternoon or early in the morning. The beach is walkable for about 1/4 mile.... More

Lovely soft sand. Blue warm sea. Umbrellas and loungers available to hire. Loads of space. The beach is cleaned every morning so all the fallen leaves have been removed. Watch out for falling coconuts tho!! Don't sit under the palm trees. 😀. Lovely place to sit and watch the sun go down later in the day.

Dover is a great beach. It's is wide and the ocean at this location is very swimmable. I enjoyed walking there every morning, meeting the same regulars along the way. It's possible to rent a chaise and there are places to buy refreshments. Many trees around to provide shade.

you will have to pay for deck chairs here if you are not staying at one of the more fancy hotels. Nice long stretch of beach.

This beach is about 1/4 mile in length. Chairs & beach umbrellas are rented for the day, $20 usd. There's plenty of food and drink vendors. Walk beyond the boulders and through the shallow water to the other small beach to find shells & beach glass. Very low key, relaxing day in the sun

We recently spent seven nights at Dover Beach Hotel.The staff were very friendly and helpful.We had an awful experience with the travel company who should have arranged our holiday. Having no itinerary up to two days before the start date, then being told the holiday was not available as the company had no funds to pay for the bookings, .was... More
